Enlarged prostate (prostastic hyperplasia)

The starting point is a benign growth (hyperplasia) of the so-called transition zone of the prostate and the immediate glands around the urethra. This is more likely to be a sign of old age and not necessarily a disease.

Urine drainage becomes increasingly more difficult for the bladder as there is frequent urination, nocturnal urination and a marked weakening of the urinary stream. In the first phase, this can usually be favourably influenced with drugs, with advancing age the bladder's strength diminishes. If hyperplasia continues and the efficacy of the drugs reduces with time, surgical treatments need to be considered.
